Mauricio Hatchwell Toledano
Born in Casablanca (Morocco) in 1940 and married to Monique Altaras, the mother of his three children, he eventually became an eminent businessman in the fields of petroleum, cement and other raw materials and a world-class patron of numerous foundations and universities.
In 1971 he founded the company Excem Grupo 1971 S.A. which was to become the first company of the Excem Group, which for decades became one of the largest independent traders in Southern Europe. His entrepreneurial and daring spirit led him to be one of the first entrepreneurs to venture into Asia and to move into international environments.
He was a very active member of cultural, academic, business and social circles, not only in Spain as president of the Sephardic Federation, but also in France, Israel, China and the USA, holding various positions in the governing bodies of several academic institutions in those countries.
Among other awards, he received the Jerusalem 3000 prize in 1995 (awarded by Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated shortly afterwards); the commendation of number of the Order of Civil Merit in 1999 by the Spanish Government, and the Prince of Asturias Award for Concord in 1990.
From our beginnings in the 80s with the Excem group and later in the 90s as Excem Technologies, we have managed dozens of technological projects in defence and security with emblematic clients such as RENFE, AENA, Telefónica, Bank of Spain, Ministry of Finance, the Civil Guard and National Police Corps.
Excem and Efrat (with its subsidiary Comverse Network Systems) expand their collaboration on projects with mobile operators. In 1995 they signed with Airtel (now Vodafone) for the supply of voicemail and messaging systems.
Since 1995 we have developed a series of projects with major operators such as Vodafone, Telefónica, UNI2, Madritel, Menta, Retena / Reterioja, Supercable de Andalucía, Retevisión, Orange (Amena), Euskaltel, Ono and Andorra Telecom
In 1995, we began a series of projects related to intelligence and communications interception for law enforcement agencies.
The first projects are carried out in the field of access control and perimeter protection with implementation in institutions such as RENFE, Bank of Spain, RTVE, Ministry of Finance and Unión Fenosa.
In 2003 Excem Technologies established a cooperation agreement with the company Nuctech for the commercialisation, supply and support of X-Ray Inspection and Scanning systems in Spain.
Excem and Nuctech received the first order from the Customs and Excise Department of the Tax Agency for the supply and maintenance of 3 mobile systems for the ports of Bilbao, Vigo and Las Palmas.
Excem was awarded a contract by the Tax Agency for the support and maintenance of Megaport systems in the ports of Algeciras, Valencia, Barcelona, Bilbao, Vigo and Las Palmas. The contract was renewed and extended during 2018.
In the area of Cybersecurity, Excem together with Cognyte (formerly Verint) have supplied network protection and monitoring systems for the General Public Administration system.
Excem and Cognyte (formerly Verint) extend their cooperation in the field of Video Analytics and Video Intelligence solutions. Today we are in advanced cooperation in project management.
Excem has been awarded the contract by ADIF for the installation of baggage and luggage inspection systems in the main ADIF high speed train stations.
